Feedback/ideas 60's photo in restoration process
2 Attachment(s)
I have been working at this very damaged photo of my sisters and me taken in the early 60's. Tried all sorts of channel work/blending with minimal success.

I've attached a before and after.

Here's what I did:

1. Made a mask of the faces using color range
2. Made the faces super green with a color balance adjustment
3. Picked up a little bit of normal skin color with the eye dropper
4. Painted with a very soft brush set at about a 50% flow and switched around with opacity ranging from as low as 9% to 30%.

I clearly have a way to go and any ideas about other methods and feedback would be great!

Well I didn't think the color was too bad. I copied the layer and used screen blending mode and set it at 33% opacity. I then added a black and white adjustment layer with black in the mask and painted out the discoloration on the siding of the house.
